READ ALL THE INSTRUCTIONS AND IF YOU CANT DO IT DONT TAKE IT. YOU HAVE TO COMPLETE THE WORD COUNT.
you have to answer 1 question that has four parts. use the file uploaded as needed.
1)Have you noticed how the “one-drop rule” shows up today?
2)What, if anything, does the Tulsa Race Riot tell us about the USA as a country?
3)Why is the Tulsa event largely not discussed in US society?
4)Does this lecture help you to better understand the society you live in?
then you have to answer to the classmates about the information they’re written. by reading these you can also get an idea of what to write for the main questions but don’t copy. be reflective and use easy language. have full complete sentences.
student one :
1. The “one-drop rule” depicts the regularity of racism in the US. I am not entirely sure if this applies to the concept of the one drop rule, however, oftentimes the news will give percentages of the probability of a white man committing a crime compared to a black man.
2. Personally, I think that the Tulsa Riot Race depicts how divided the USA is as a country. As I read the about what happened at the riot, it reminded me of the book, “To Kill A Mockingbird.” Everyone was more likely to believe the white women than the black man. The people that had some sort of power whether it be policemen or US officials were typically white. A white man is more likely to defend another white man than a black man which is exactly what happened in the Tulsa Riot Race. It shows how we take the side of someone who looks similar to us and antagonize someone that may look a little different.
3. The Tulsa event is not a largely discussed event in US society because it is not something that people are very proud of. In US history, based off the classes that I have taken, we justify all the bad things that have taken place by glorifying all the good things. I think that the Tulsa Riot Race is not something talked about because it is a shameful event that should not have taken place. Three hundred people dying and 800 people being injured is not a part of history I think many people would want to glorify.
4. I think this lecture did help in my understanding of the society that I live in. It brought to light many events that I did not know about, and I like how it did not really sugar coat it or give half of the story to make it seem a little less gruesome than it was. Our society is divided, and it seems like it alway has been divided regardless of whether we notice it today or not. It depicts how even though are society has progressed and become modernized, in the back of our minds, there is alway some sort of separation between races. For example, if race does not define us, why do we have to fill our or ethnicity or nationality when filing out school forms?
student two:
To be honest, I have not recently seen the “one-drop rule” in a negative connotation in today’s society but I have seen people identify their race/ethnicity as the origin that has that “one drop.” I have friends that are, for example, majority white and have a small percent of a minority race and they consider themselves a minority. I do not see anyone saying that them being a minority is a bad thing anymore, around me at least, and how the “one-drop rule” is prevalent today.
The Tulsa Race Riot is definetly an interesting topic to say the least. I am going to be 100%, I do not believe I have ever heard of this riot before today. Maybe I have in a previous class but just forgot, but this is the first time I can say I learned about it. This riot, though, does say a lot about our country. It shows that our roots are deep within racism and racism has been engraved into our countries existence. I do not think that racism will ever end in our country because there will always be people that stick to their beliefs and morals, even if they are evil and disgusting ones like racism.
For as to why do I think the Tulsa Race Riot is covered up? I have no idea. I want to see what other people in this class have to say about it because I for sure am stumped on this one. Especially with how things are today in people trying to bring equality into our country, why would this race be covered up. I have no idea, why do you guys think that?
This lecture definetly helps me know the type of society I live in and what the background of our country is. I did not know some of these things I learned today, but I also did learn that most of it is very sad. It is unfortunate that these events had to occur, but hopefully we can learn from them.
student three:
1. Have you noticed how the “one-drop rule” shows up today?
The one-drop rule states that if anyone had an ancestor who was black, that person would also be considered black. I have not noticed the one-drop rule, and I feel that it’s not valid anymore. So, for example, when someone does DNA testing (like 23 and me), and they find out that they are 3% black, they aren’t going to consider themselves black because it is too small of a number to be significant. Back then, with the rule, 3% would’ve been enough to consider you black.
2. What, if anything, does the Tulsa Race Riot tell us about the USA as a country?
The Tusla Race Riot tells us about the deep-rooted racism in the USA. If someone today were to bump into you in an elevator, it would not be a big deal, no matter what race that person who bumped into you was. It was such a big deal back then because black people were seen as plagues and not to be touched. All the man did was bump into a white woman, and it caused a massive riot. Most white people in the Tusla area were foaming at the mouth to kill the black residents of Tusla for an accusation that did not occur. No one fact-checked the white woman; it was instantly believed that the black man hurt the white woman. That was the norm back then. It’s almost like white people were waiting for black people to mess up so they could have an excuse to hurt black people.
3. Why is the Tulsa event largely not discussed in US society?
The Tusla event is not largely discussed in US society because it doesn’t paint the country in a good light. Thinking back to my former history classes in middle school and high school, I recognize that while these classes discussed Jim Crow and segregation, they never went entirely into detail. It feels that the facts given to us were cherry-picked – they want us to know it was bad, but not how bad it truly was. I think that not discussing the Tulsa event is a way to prevent people from seeing the realities of that time.
4. Does this lecture help you to better understand the society you live in?
Yes, this lecture helps me better understand the society we live in. It showed me how some history classes like to cherry-pick information to give out. For example, I had never heard of Ida Wells before this lecture, and I am pretty shocked that we never did. She seems like an extraordinary and important lady that needs to be discussed more! It also showed me that racism from the past still has significance today. For example, people having to identify their race, houses not being able to be bought by people who are not white, location segregation, etc. Reading this lecture opened my eyes and made me recognize the reality in our society.
response to professor:
Pauline wrote:
I find it fascinating that you bring up the fact that theoretical physicist question our perception of reality. After taking Chemistry and Microbiology I questioned this “reality.” Where does the kinetic energy come from? I was wondering that if things are in motion and we don’t like the path it’s on, can we change it?
If our brin lights up before we make a decision, can we influence our minds to make better choices? If we are here for the ride, then what for?
I’m sure there is someone here in class, perhaps you, Professor, who has heard of Nerolink? Or the theory that this reality we live is an “assimilation.” AKA the Matrix. The thought behind this is the fact that our brains receive signals that give it the impression of touch, tase, smell, ect. Have you heard of phantom pain? Where amputees feel pain in their amputated limb? I heard of a patient that ended up paralyzed and op-ed into having surgery to cut off his legs since he wouldn’t be using them anymore. I guess this could be a baised view of freedom, such as “freedom from”; freedom of choice. Is it though? Is he really free from the burden of having useless legs? Or did he accept his limitations? I think so, I think he reduced his needs and desires and emotions that shaped the situation.
My response: Pauline seems to be asking about the nature of reality and free will. This is a very old philosophical question, and includes such explanations as the “brain in the vat,” which suggests that your brain might just exist in someone’s laboratory, and all your experiences are just signals they send to your brain. As for free will, it certainly seems like we our making choices that matter, but a cause-and-effect universe suggests everything is determined by what came before. So this a human frustration–we can’t know for sure the answers to these very profound questions. We can explore them, avoid them, even choose beliefs, but we can’t really know for sure, or so it seems. For different answers, you can visit the Youtube channel called “Closer to Truth”.
